May 17, 2019 Canon EOS RP Review

The Canon EOS RP is Canon’s second entry in the new R series of mirrorless cameras from Canada.  This second full-frame mirrorless camera comes with a slightly reduced spec list and a price tag roughly $1000 less – making it one of the most affordable entry points into a full frame camera, period, and also [&hel [Read more...]

May 15, 2019 Sigma 28mm F1.4 DG ART Image Gallery

Sigma has been on somewhat of a roll as of late as they continue to refine their process of lens development in the ART series.  Early on I found the ART series somewhat frustrating, as there was frequently a blend of very good optics, a reasonable price, but then a frustrating autofocus experience.  In more […] [Read more...]

May 1, 2019 Kamlan 50mm F1.1 MKII Image Gallery

The first Kamlan lens I ever tested was the predecessor of this lens.  I reviewed it in 2017, and came away with the impression that while there were things I really liked (nice build and beautiful bokeh), the lens was more of a novelty at wide apertures due to being soft and low contrast.  The […] [Read more...]

The Viltrox 85mm F1.8 is a new manual focus lens designed for Sony FE.  There is an autofocus version that will come later (for an additional $80), but this lens may prove to be the better option for video due to having a gorgeous manual focus ring.  This is the second Viltrox lens that I’ve […] [Read more...]

April 26, 2019 Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 FE Review

The Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 for Sony FE has been one of the lenses I’ve been most excited about in 2019 since Samyang told me it was coming.  Why?  On a personal note, because I’ve been wanting a good portrait lens for Sony.  I’ve been adapting the Tamron SP 85mm F1.8 VC lens, which is a [&hell [Read more...]

April 22, 2019 PolarPro QuartzLine Filters Review

I was introduced to the company PolarPro near the beginning of 2019 when they reached out to me to see if I had any interest in reviewing some of their products.  I get a lot of review requests (most of which I turn down), but I do take the time to do a quick investigation […] [Read more...]
